She'll probably get a gig at Faux News. Awful person.

 

I read that Eric Trump was spit on tonight. Well, he's probably into that anyway.

Is that why he's trending?  (Shrugs) Oh well.

They just want to be pandered to so they can feel morally righteous. Well, tough [!@#$%^&*]. 

 

I think this is a group that has made the conscious decision to cede moral high-ground in favor of pushing through their agenda.  There is no moral righteousness with this group now, just play-acting.

AOC backed Cabán and urged her twitter followers to contribute to Cabán's campaign.  It paid off last night. 

 

 

A mess.

Yeah. She's got my vote now.

 

Meanwhile, on Opposite Street:

 

 

And now, this week's new low:

I think Eric Trump made up a story about being spat on. The restaurant says that they didn't see the incident and there are no witnesses saying that it occurs. The Secret Service detained someone, but they could have done that based just on caution because he claimed someone spat on him. If it is truly I think he provoked the incident by trying to touch the woman or making an inappropriate comment. He isn't pressing charges which is surprising for someone from such a vindictive family.

Bernie Sanders wouldn't commit to dropping out of the race before the convention if he were not the nominee and said some people say he would've beat Trump "if the system weren't rigged against me." with @kasie

 

I mean, that is a totally unfair question to Bernie or any candidate over a year before the convention. “Oh nobody has voted yet, but will drop out if you lose?”  The message that he is seeking to undermine the presumptive nominee and contest a convention is underlying in that question, when he didn’t last time, and it is way too soon to assume he would this time. 

 

Idk. I hate that question. It would be different if it were June 2020 and he were asked that question and he was in 2nd place. “Are you gonna stay in this and harm the presumptive nominee?” Fair question. In June 2019, “if you’re hypothetically in 2nd a year from now, will you drop out?” FOH. That’s not a fair question.

If you're going to speak in Spanish learn how to speak it before your mouth opens up.

 

😂The worst thing is you could see the wheels turning in Booker's head when Beto spoke it first. "NO! That's my cool party trick that I do." IDK, Booker is just such a goober to me... Like, why do you keep mentioning that you face constant gunfire in your neighborhood? You were mayor of the city you live in, so that makes you look not so great.

 

To me, Julian Castro is having a breakout night. He is offering a lot of policy ideas but delivering it well. Warren is not having a great night, at least to me. I really dislike deBlasio but he has been making the most of the little time he has gotten (although I've been able to finish a few of his sentences, having heard them before. I guess NYC was the test audience.)

Tim Ryan and his bug eyed look scares me...lol

 

And yes I was referring to Booker.

 

I don't care for Castro and Warren is coming off better than I thought she would.

I love how Delaney keeps begging to speak and then the moderators are like, "ugh, fine, you can have thirty seconds, I guess, but then don't say anything for a while." 😂 But you can't blame them because he does nothing with the little time they give him. Why is he running?

And the ACA is being threatened once more - thanks to 5th circuit judges appointed by Orange Tumor (Trump) and Toxic Turtle (McConnell). I ALMOST want them to repeal the ACA. Just imagine the fun the GOP will have in 2020 if that happens!

And he keeps saying...what was the question?

 

And now Castro speaks Spanish...
